County Board look a bit silly now telling everyone that it would start at the end of August/early Sept. Then it went back to Dec and now by the looks of the objections will go back even further till the new year. If it starts in the new year there isn't a hope of it being done for Connacht championship.
Maybe London are pulling a fast one again, get all the money in and don't bother building at all.

Great to hear that things are finally progressing with Ruislip.

Just had a couple of questions about the timing of when the work will progress and how they will affect games in London, according to the article on hoganstand:

"Work will begin on the £4.17/€5 million project after the Exiles play host to Roscommon in the Connacht SFC on May 24"

What happens if London get a home draw in the qualifiers? Will work be delayed further?

Where are all the club championships going to be played? Hopefully not in Greenford!!

Sadly the only option is Greenford, I would hope they might get some fencing up around the main pitch at least. Hopefully there has been some contingency put in play for the money developing Ruislip to be set aside so that Greenford is a suitable venue during the Ruislip redevelopment

Even with some fencing, Greenford is a long way off being an acceptable inter-county venue. I presume London would have to forfeit home advantage, and play any games after the Roscommon one back in Ireland.

Realistically, Birmingham is the next suitable established GAA venue unless something can be done in conjunction with London Irish?

Hazelwood is a class training complex, one of the best rugby training facilities in the UK. I'm sure the Powerday boys would be well up for it but doubt the County Board would have the foresight to make it happen. No chance the old boys are travelling that far south every weekend!

Would love to know which positions within the County Board that you ran for previously or which you intend to run for in the future? - You clearly feel there isn't enough being done. I would like to know what you feel you can offer and if you have something constructive to offer, perhaps I will be able to persuade my club to vote for you in the next elections.

My understanding is that the London team have already used the facilities at London Irish so I would imagine that there is some foresight and therefore a reasonable chance that something might come from Hazelwood, especially if the alternative is going to Birmingham.

I can't say I know a great deal about the facilities there. I assume that there would be the possibility of actually fitting in a GAA in line with the guidelines required? Does anyone know if the pitch logistics can be accomodated?

Kerryman, I was involved with the County Board many moons ago for a short period of time but quickly got frustrated with the lack of action at the time and the politics involved. No hard feelings from it, just thought it was a waste of my own personal time.

By the looks of TCG's weekly notes though the fresh faces are having an impact and fair play to them:

All senior championship games will take place this season at the London Irish Rugby club grounds at Hazel wood, Sunbury.

My son plays for London Irish u16's so well accustomed to the Rugby academy set-ups. Hazelwood is definitely up there with the best. They have about 60 acres of land with numerous pitches, an artificial 4G pitch and a class gym. They put temporary standing for some of the 'A' games as well. Much better option than having games in Greenford IMO
